Welcome to Space Youth Project, a safe space
for Dorset's LGBT+ youth!
Space runs regular, free youth groups all across Dorset, in Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester, Weymouth, Beaminster, and Sherborne, for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and questioning young people. We welcome every LGBT+ person regardless of race, religion, or social background.
As well as offering one-to-one support, family support, workshops for schools, colleges and youth groups, and training for professionals.
We have been around since 2001, starting with one group based in Bournemouth. Over the years, Space has evolved. Space is now built up of six groups, a number of services, our lovely team, and of course, our members.
Our Aims Are To...
We support young people who are or may be lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or questioning their sexuality and/or gender identity.
To empower all young people to have positive self-esteem and confidence, for them to know they are supported and to give them a sense that they are part of a community and never alone. To facilitate freedom of expression and association.
We overcome and help with integration, address issues caused or intensified by prejudice and provide access to additional support and services.
